24 Homes to Ge pairs

Block Grant Provides Help for the wo income Elderly

Jim Gilley of Pilot Equipment company, demonstrates a
super-duper pothole patcher for the City of Port St. Joe.
The City is in the throes of a pothole patching campaign
and had an interest in the piece of equipment.

The good news to come out of
the City Commission meeting
Tuesday night was that some two
dozen sub-standard homes of the
elderly in north Port St. Joe will
receive extensive repairs as the
result of a Block Grant recently
obtained by the Commission. The
bad news is that the repair pro-
cess will likely not begin until
early in 1992.
The City has utilized the ser-
vices of Julian Webb, grant writ-
er, of Chipley, to secure nearly a
half million dollars for the rehab
work, geared at helping the lower
income elderly of the city.
Webb, who appeared before
the Commission to outline the
program schedule, said 24 homes
have been designated fog the re-
hab work. 'That's all -we have
money for and we may even have
to drop one or two of these,"
Webb said.
The grant writer pointed out
that the homes to be repaired are
limited "because we have a limit
of about $14,000 we can spend
on a single home. Some need con;
siderably more work than this,
and we had to turn them down
because we didn't have the mon-

ey to do these extensive projects."
Webb pointed out that all the
repair slots have been filled al-
ready. 'There is no need for oth-
ers to apply because we have al-
ready committed all our money,"
he said.
The delay until early next
year is being caused by the red
tape activities required by govern-
ment agencies, environmental Im-
pact reports, naming a committee
to oversee the program and the
City meeting certain criteria.
An oversee committee was
named by the Commission Tues-
day night, consisting of Lula Wil-
son, Christine Williams and Paul
Webb said that in the past,
such grants have contained funds
for total replacement of dwellings
not considered to be repairable.
"We received none of these funds
in this grant. We'll be hampered
by the fact that we can spend no
more than $14,000 on a project
and government guidelines won't
let us begin any project our fund
limits won't allow us to complete.
This is the reason we had to turn
down several homes which need-
ed extensive repairs," Webb said.
Commissioner Charles
Tharpe reported to the Board that
crews from the Department of
Transportation came into Port St.
Jqe Monday to begin repairs to
raised jo'ihts on Fifth Street and

questioned the controls over long

cilities. "I understand we had
$1,800 worth of long distance
calls made from City phones last
month," Linton said.
Clerk Alden Farris said there
are only three phones in City Hall
from which long distance calls
can be made and only special

First Union to

Close Down St.

Joe Beach Branch

After 10 years of operation, serving the banking
needs of the beach communities, First Union Bank an-
nounced this week it would close its beach branch at St.
Joe Beach as an economy measure. "In these days of
problems in the banking industry, we're taking every
step we can to maintain our status as a quality banking
service," Mark Simpson, city manager, said.
Simpson said, "It takes about $10 million in deposits
to support a branch office and the Beach Branch has nev-
er had that kind of operation."
The Beach Branch ,as built by the Florida National
Bank during the booing real estate days along the
beaches of Gulf County in order to be on the spot when
business warranted a branch office. Since the real estate
market has degenerated over the past few years, the
branch office has become a superfluous part of banking
here in the south end of Gulf County.
Simpson said the branch office will be closed Friday,
June 28. The bank will maintain the facility, but will not
operate it as a branch bank office.
Simpson said he and First Union official, Gary Usina,
inet- -withr, the Mexid.Beaeh* City" Commissionr Monday
night to advise them of. the move being taken by First
Simpson said the bank headquarters here in Port St.
Joe would be able to handle the beach business from its
central headquarters with no problem. Business at the
branch was funneled through the Port St. Joe office.

Hat's Off.

Our hat is doffed in respect to the Presbyteriaps of the Unit-
ed States of America. In the face of a widely-circulated report on
sexuality in the church, the members of the Presbyterian Gener-
al Assembly stood firm in support of accepted biblical directions
for sex being reserved for marriage and that adultery and homo-
sexuality would not be accepted as a viable lifestyle, according
to biblical teachings. *"
The report was leaked fully a month before it was presented
to the annual meeting of the Presbyterian leadership in its Balti-
more meeting. Not only was it the talk of Presbyterians all over
the United States, but among mainline Christian denominations
of all kinds, who have been wrestling with the matters them-
In their letter of rejection 'of the report, there was a para-
graph which said, "Let it be said that in Baltimore the 203rd
General Assembly heard the cry of the church for an assembly
that listens to the grass roots."
Listening to the grass roots seems to be the catalyst which
caused the Presbyterian Assembly to cast a 534-31 vote to trash
the report. In spite of a sizeable demonstration by nearly 300 ho-
mosexual rights activists, the Presbyterians stood firm to the
cause of listening to the grass roots. They did something our
secular courts, law makers, cabinets and the Supreme Court
need to do-listen to the grass roots!
The church followed the teachings of the Bible in that it con-
tinues to attempt to serve the spiritual needs of these people of
alternate lifestyles, but they will not allow them a place of lead-
ership in the. church, which would serve to give credence to ho-
mosexuality, living together without benefit of marriage and an
erosion of the sanctity of marriage. Even those of different life-
styles should be able to understand this.
Bible teachings are adamant at demanding normal sexual
behaviour and these teachings do not include the aforemen-
tioned different lifestyles. It, in fact, gives these manners of life
as a "no-no", in no uncertain terms. We admire the 534 Presby-
terians out of 565 who recognized this biblical admonition, in
spite of strong encouragement to do otherwise.
Not only did they stick up for definite biblical teachings in a
day .when the public tendency seems to be to ignore them, but
they had an ear to the public's pulse, which said, "Stand firm for
what is right and don't bend to the thunderous demands of a
few who would try to persuade so many of us to follow teachings
which are not acceptable to the majority because they are not
acceptable in light of God's teachings." Just because some
Christians follow these different ways doesn't make them right."

It's A Pity

We totally agree with the Gulf County Commission that state
money being spent on Salinas Park will be money wasted, sim-
ply because the County cannot afford-however much it may de-
sire to do so-to keep a custodian at the park, 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. We can't even afford to maintain such a
schedule with the three depositories for solid waste inside the
county; a dause far more important to the health and welfare of
all the p'ebple of Gulf County than a park could ever be.
It's a pity. We wish we had the money to maintain Salinas
Park. It would be a definite asset to Gulf County and its budding
tourist business. It is in a beautiful location, attractive to beach-
goers both homegrown and from other places.
We have joined others in talking directly to our Legislative
delegation about this, asking that, if possible, the money be put
to some other more useful purpose until we can afford to main-
tain such a desired .installation as Salinas Park. The matter had
gone too far to turn back, we were informed, and as much prac-
ticality as our argument contained, it would be almost impossi-
ble to stop the process.
It's no black mark against the County Commission that they
are unable to come up with maintenance money for the park.
Part of the reason the money isn't available is because financing
of more and more state mandated programs is being abandoned
by Tallahassee; required to be kept in operation at the threat of
hefty fines and the expense of the required programs be borne
by county government.
Let us point out that it isn't the County Commission which
cannot afford to maintain Salinas Park from the hordes who
seem to have nothing better to do than to wreck such publiofa-
cilities on a regular basis. The bottom line is that all of us, the
individual taxpayers, can't afford it with the public financial pic-
ture what It is today, from Washington, D.C., to the City Hall.

IHunker Down with Kes

Both Sides of the Coin

I have been thinking on this
father-son thing lately. I reckon
the just passed Father's Day set
me to pondering........
I remember well being the
son. Boy howdy. I had trouble
with that at times. It seemed like
all I did was take orders and hop.
You know what I mean? I must'a
been about six weeks old, some
big guy had me down in the cot-
ton, pulling weeds. I stopped for a
second to wipe the sweat out of
my little eyes and look around for
that bottle that had the good tast-

Ing white stuff In it. The big guy
spotted me, "Let's go, son, you
can rest at the end or the row."
It crossed my mind to yell
out. "Hey mister, who died and
left you in charge?" But even at
the tender age of six weeks there
are some things that you just in-
nately comprehend. I kept my
mouth shut and went back to
pulling weeds. The big guy
looked like he was in charge
A couple of years later I had a
little brother and, as you know,
little brothers make good punch-

Ing bags. I was boxing Dave
around one afternoon as was the
custom when Dad came by.
"That's enough. son." He said it
so low like, no emotion In his
voice. Surely he was just kidding.
If he'd a'really meant It, he'd
a'yelled a little bit. I was older
now, I was tired of taking or-
ders..... Besides, Dad was just
about around the corner. I
reached out and kind'a flipped a

the story. He went to whaling

belt. That thing weighed 40
pounds! He had me by the arm
and I was in that famous "circle

the sun went down. Folks, the big .
guy was in charge!
I'll tell you what kind of con-
trol Dad had. We'd be in the floor
listening to 'Amos and Andy' and
we'd get just a little rowdy. My
Father would clear his throat.
We'd get as still as church mice
and nobody would date speak for

lice Department. Some people
consider them just a group of
people who can't find a decent job
anywhere else, playing at being a
To be honest, some people
think that. But experience has
shown me differently.
During my 40 years here in
Port St. Joe, I have had to call on
the services of the department
three times. They have called me
at night several times, during the
course of the years to report a
door being open here at the office,
a noise inside the building, and
one night, there was smoke com-
ing from a furnace flue, caused
by condensation, but he wanted
me to check it out.
In each of those three in-
stances in which I called the de-

apartment, I had immediate re-
sponse and in all three cases, the
problem was solved almost on the

THE THIRD AND last time I
called the local police was just
last Wednesday night, when I re-
alized I had a prowler messing
around on my carport, just out-
side my bedroom window.
I had stayed up Wednesday
night, watching the final game of
the Chicago Bulls and the Los
Angeles Lakers basketball tourna-
ment and watched until the final
tick of the clock. It was a few
minutes after midnight before I
went to the upstairs bathroom to
take a shower and come back
downstairs to bed.
Everyone in the house was
already in bed and asleep before
the game was over.
Even the dogs must have
been asleep. We have two smaller
size poodles and even though

they are small, they will raise the
dead with their barking when a
relative, a friend, or an acquain-
tance comes into the yard.
When the prowler came, they
never uttered even the first whim-
per. This fact made me wonder,
at first, if I actually had a prowl-
er. We have never had one before.

on the bed, and just before I drift-
ed off to sleep, I heard what
sounded like someone hitting the
side of one of our cars, three
times. I listened a while and
heard nothing else and decided
the outside cat had knocked
something over.
Then, in a couple of minutes,
I heard the three raps again.
This time, I got up and
peeped out the window which
opens onto the carport and I
could see the shape of a person
moving around just outside the

I put on my pants, got my
pistol and flashlight and edged
my way toward the carport door. I
eased open the door and quickly
switched on the carport light, but
didn't see a thing moving.
I then went out on the car-
port and saw unmistakable small
signs that someone had been
around and was possibly still
there, somewhere.
After looking around, I came
back inside the house, turned out
the light, like I was going back to
bed, and called police.
This was when the local po-
lice made a believer of me.
I DIALED THE police num-
ber and heard, "Police Depart-
ment, WhiteEagle speaking!"
I explained about the prowler
and was instructed to stay by the
phone and don't go outside. "We'll
have someone there in just a min-
And, he did just that!
Within a minute, a police

cruiser eased down the street,
with its spotlight probing the
dark comers of the neighborhood.
After the car eased by, I
heard someone running between
my house and that of my neigh-
bor, Walter Duren. I immediately
called the PD number again, to
report that the car had just gone
by and I had heard someone run-
"I know," said WhiteEagle.
'The officers have him hemmed
up now and are away from their
car. Just as soon as I can talk to
them, I'll call you back and let
you know What's happening."
In just a minute or two, he
called back and asked me to go to
the door.
Officer Joe Nugent was there
reporting they had the prowler
locked up in their car and asking
me to come outside and see if
anything was missing.
I found out that officer Mark
Cutler had been let out of the car
before it cruised by the house, to

come onto the scene on foot He
had seen what I heard-the man
running-and picked him up
from a hiding place in some
bushes. Officer John Dixon was
off duty, but was talking with
Cutler when the call came down
and decided to join them in look-
ing into the matter.
In less than 10 minutes, they
had answered the call and seized
the prowler and gained at least
three families in support of their
abilities. The area covered includ-
ed my home, Walter Duren and
Bill White, my neighbors. The
prowler had taken a long iron bar
from Duren's shed in his back
yard and had used it to try and
break into my wife's car.
By percentages, a major
crime is a seldom thing in Port
St. Joe. The major part of our
crime is the kind I experienced.
The manner in which it was han-
dled and the peace of mind it left
us with, was more than a person
could reasonably expect.

Wendell Campbell

The Iron Rose
Somewhere along the way, at some point in her tragic life -
and I don't think it was too long ago my youngest sister went off
the deep end. It was a progressive thing and we, her brothers and
sisters, tried to tell her long ago to seek help, but she never would.
Many times I have told her, "Sister, you're crazyl You need help"
Just last week I visited with her and the first thing she said
when she saw me was, "Momma's baby boy!" Two of my other sis-
ters were there looking out for her and they told me she had heard
a T.V. evangelist refer to himself as Momma's baby boy. Although
I'm the youngest male in our family, I've never seriously considered
becoming a T.V. evangelist. I don't know what I would do with that
much money.
Anyway. for the past few years our family has tried to figure out
what brought this condition on that plagues our baby sister. Maybe
it was the divorce she went through several years ago. Or maybe it
was the pressure of her job she's a school teacher and that job is
enough to drive anyone crazy. But she's not completely crazy, not
yet anyway.
We have about settled on the theory that the breaking point
was her last "minor surgery." The events prior to and during that
event, we believe, might have been the straw that broke the mule's
back, or whatever.
Several events of significance are worthy of note during that
time. When my other two sisters carried her to the emergency room
for some tests prior to her surgery, she told the nurse that they
were her mother and grandmother. When the nurse informed her
the procedure would take a little longer than expected, she said,
'Tell my mother and grandmother so they won't be concerned."
The nurse informed my other two sisters and they, thinking "a

shopping center located a few blocks from the hospital.
Soon afte# my sisters left, the nurses completed the tests on
baby sister and proceeded to clean up the emergency room and
prepared to leave for home. When they had completed their work
and were ready to go home, my two sisters had not returned, but
the nurse, thinking they would be "right back", decided to put my
sedated sister in a wheelchair and leave her in the waiting room for
her "mother and grandmother."
My two sisters found her that way when they returned; sitting
in a wheelchair, still drugged from the test with her head lolling
from side to side mumbling something about "food the people from
the church brought." They thought that unusual because she
doesn't go to church and knows few people who do, except me, of
Anyway, the day of her operation I visited her and witnessed
some of her undoings. When I arrived that afternoon, she was still
sedated form the surgery and did, in fact, on several occasions,
mention "people from the church." She mumbled something about
all the food the people from the church would bring and was con-
cerned about finding a parking place at home because many of the
members of the church would be there to visit here when she ar-
rived home.
There was no one there, of course, the day we took her home,
although she called several people to see if they would be there to
greet her. As a matter of fact, her dog had even run off and she
didn't find her until a week later.
The Lord only knows what is to become of her. Sooner or later
she must come to terms with her problem, but meanwhile we're
just going to call her the "Iron Rose." She's suffered a long time

County Board Has Special Meeting

It took only 30 minutes in a
special meeting Monday morning,
for the Gulf County Commission
to take care of four important
matters left hanging from their
regular meeting last Tuesday.
The Board took another step
toward a viable recycling program
Monday, when they awarded a

bid to the Cumbaa Company, of
Blountstown, to construct a recy-
cling shed here in the county.
The shed will be used to store
materials which are currently be-
ing recycled; where they will be
gathered and prepared for ship-
ment to a user point.
The building is being paid for
with a state grant to facilitate re-

cycling. Cumbaa offered a bid of
$46,500 to construct the shed.
The Commission also took a
first step toward constructing a
central water system for White
City, when they agreed to adver-
tise to purchase a parcel of land
on which to locate the system.

Girvin Address Gulf

Education Leaders

'We have created a monster,"
Bay County Sheriffs Department
spokesman, Jerry -Girvin told a
group of Gulf County education
department leaders Tuesday
Involved in a program of use
and identification of controlled
substances, the department di-
rectors were told by Girvin that
young people are experimenting
with drugs, "because they have
already experienced everything
else. We have six-year-old home-
coming queens and beauty
queens. We have 10-year-old or-
ganized athletic leaders and he-
roes of other sorts these days. Af-
ter a six-year-old has been class
queen and after a 10-year-old has
been the star of his class or his
team, what else is there to accom-
plish for adventure?"
Girvin told a group ofabout a
dozen Gulf County School System
health workers, counsellors and
psychologists that the use of
drugs is tapering off in Florida
schools. "It's tapering off only
slightly, but we can see a definite
downward trend," he said. The
speaker advised that the system
need not lull itself to sleep, think-
ing "there are no drugs in your
school. They're there."
Girvin said the drug of choice
is changing. 'Today's favorite
drug of choice is marijuana. The
kids are becoming sophisticated
to know enough to leave the real-
ly dangerous drugs such as LSD
alone. They're not using the ex-
tremely dangerous drugs that
permanently alter the mind.

Girvin said beer Is still up
near the top in the favorite drug
of the youth. 'We see some hard
liqoflr--in bur area, but mostly
beer is the 'in' beverage of the ex-
perimenting youth." He said that
in the larger city settings, such as
Miami and Tampa, the cocaine
and hard liquor are problems.
"It's a different world out
there and unless adults learn to
recognize the different opinions
now among us concerning alco-
hol, drugs and sex, we're going to
be hard put to deal with it," the
peace officer said.

Smoking and

Children Do Not

Go Hand-in-Hand

'" "* Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

"A breath of fresh air" seems harder and harder to find. Many
parents, who would be terribly upset if their children were to start
smoking, think nothing of contaminating the air the children
breathe at home with smoke.
Reports are generated almost daily that connect asthma,
breathing difficulties, colds and ear infections to different contami-
nations in the air we breathe.
The lungs of young children are very sensitive and can be per-
manently damaged by continual exposure to smoke as well as dust,
asbestos, chlorine and sugar cane chaff.
It would seem reasonable for parents who smoke to avoid doing
so around children. If an adult is able to stop smoking he should do
so. The detrimental effects of smoking on the smoker's health are
well documented at this time. Emphysema, chronic obstructive pul-
monary disease and lung cancer are all terrible ways to die. Adults
who have made the decision to smoke should be aware of the way
smokers end their lives, and, if knowing this they continue to
smoke, they have to live and to die with this decision.
It is grossly unfair for smokers to expose young children with
very sensitive young lungs to dirty household air that has been con-
taminated with smoke and fumes. For parents who must smoke,
please smoke outside the house or car. This will be much less dam-
aging for the child than being forced to breathe smoke in the en-
closed area.
Anyone can develop asthma and other lung diseases if exposed
to enough irritating contents in the air. Children with asthma just
react at a much lower level of exposure than adults. We have often
seen children with asthma improve greatly with just excluding
smoke from the house.
It is reported that the pjiralence'%f asthma has irincased 29
percent between 19804987. The death -rate from asthma has in-
creased 31 percent in the same period, and asthma related health
care costs exceeded $4 billion in 1988. Anything one can do to im-
prove these statistics will be worth while.
The concept of second hand smoke has been around for awhile.
Many adults speak up when this is a problem at work or in other
situations. Small children Usually do not have any way to protest
against second hand smoke except with coughing, wheezing, drip-
ping noses and general malaise.

Marine Patrol Concentrating On Sober Boat Operation

Boating Second Only to Highway Transportation In Fataliti

In a society where drinking
and driving is socially unaccepta-
ble, it is ironic that setting sail
with a boatload of booze is still
considered appropriate by many
According to the National
Transportation Safety Board, rec-
reational boating is second only
to highway transportation in the
number of fatalities that occur
every year, and it is estimated al-
cohol is Involved in at least half of
all boating accidents.
The 70 million people who en-
joy recreational boating each year
often forget alcohol has the same
effect on them whether they are
operating a car or a boat. When a
person is drinking, the brain's
ability to process information
slows. Reaction times are longer
in situations that demand Imme-
diate response.
On land people often desig-
nate a driver who does not drink
for the evening. Everyone who
consumes alcohol on a boat is at
risk, because when the boat's mo-
tion is coupled with reduced coor-
dination, people can fall over-
Three functions are impaired

*Judgment. The ability to
make decisions quickly, particu-
larly in high risk situations, is
one of the first things to go. For
decisions such as avoiding swim-
mers or objects in the water, the
wrong choice can be fatal.
*Vision. Even after just two
beers, your vision begins to be
impaired. Alcohol is particularly
damaging to night vision and
red/green color vision; running
lights and channel markers are
difficult to see and interpret.
*Balance. An attack of dizzi-
ness or a misstep can lead to dis-
aster. Most boating deaths occur
when people fall out of boats, or
land in the water then the boat
*Hypothermia. Alcohol gives a
false sense of warmth. In reality it
can help the body lose heat, fatal-
Boating while Intoxicated is
not only dangerous, but illegal.

Florida has a very strict law on
operating a vessel while under
the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The penalties include fines, im-
prisonment, non-paid public ser-
vice work, and mandatory sub-
stance abuse counseling. Florida
also has a chemical test law for
boat operators. Refusal to submit
to a breath or urine test will cost
you $500 and your refusal will be
used against you in court. The
Florida Marine Patrol, and local
law enforcement agencies as well,
use check points at boat ramps
and on rivers to catch impaired

The FMP and The National
Safety Council recommend that
recreational boaters follow these
*Don't drink and boat.
*Wear a U.S. Coast Guard ap-
proved personal flotation device
(PFD), a life jacket, as protection
if you do slip overboard.
*Check the weather and wa-
ter forecasts before leaving shore.
,Limit the number of passen-
gers in a small boat. There might
be seating for four, but the capac-
ity might be two or three. Check
the capacity plate.

*Have visual distress devices
approved by the Coast Guard.
.*Use the "one-third rule" of
fuel management: one-third of
the fuel to go, one-third to get
back, and one-third for reserve.
*Tell someone where you're
going, and when you'll be back.

Check with your local exten-
sion agent or garden clubs for in-
formation on plants that are best
suited for your area. By using na-
tive plants, you will cut down on
the need for pest control, water,
fertilizer and maintenance.
The best way to plan land-
scaping for your home is to think
about the expected use of the
area. If it's a yard where your
kids will be playing and there will
be a lot of foot traffic, choose
user-tolerant turf grass. If it's an
area where there will be little or
no foot traffic, you have many
choices. One idea is to leave the
area's natural vegetation. You'll

save money clearing the land for
a new house and have very little
or no maintenance that means
no lawn mowing. In very large
areas you can use small-leaf con-
federate jasmine, bugleweed, ju-
niper, dwarf lantana, or ground
covers like ferns or partridgeber-
ry. Many of these ground covers
will grow better than grass in
heavily shaded areas, and they
can be easier to maintain in
hard-to-get-at locations.
Landscaping should also be
planned to avoid water retention
close to the house and to prevent
runoff from the site. Preventing
runoff helps conserve fertilizers
and pesticides, and cuts down on
water pollution.
Contact the Florida Solar En-
ergy Center (Public Information
Office, 300 State Road 401, Cape

Canaveral, FL 32920) and ask for
their free publication on Florida
landscaping. Talk with your
builder about the best landscap-
ing for your new home, or work
with local garden experts on ways
to improve the landscaping in
your current yard.
Good landscaping can help
shade your house and lower utili-
ty costs, cut down on time spent
on lawn maintenance, and reduce
your use of water, pesticides and
fertilizers. The result is a better-
looking yard, which increases the
value of your home.

ing its value, landscaping has one
other major benefit: it can make
your house more energy-efficient.
Researchers at the Florida Solar
Energy Center (FSEC) say that
landscaping can be designed to
shade your house and keep the
interior more comfortable, to pre-
serve the natural vegetation and
improve the appearance of the
home and yard, and to reduce
watering requirements and fur-
ther save you money.
Trees and tall shrubs can
provide shade on the east, north-
east, west and northwest sides of
the home. Good choices for Flori-
da, according to FSEC research-
ers, are citrus trees, wax myrtle,
Spanish bayonet, shining sumac,
southern red cedar and yaupon
Homeowners in Central and
North Florida should use full,
tall-canopied deciduous trees
(which: lose their leaves-in winter) .1
on the south side of the home.
Good choices here are Florida
elms, southern red maples or
sweet gum.
Another good landscaping
strategy is to use foundation
plantings to shade the lower wall
areas. This will keep the ground
next to the house cook and will
block re-radiation from adjacent
hot surfaces. You can also use
trees to shade the air-conditioner

Developing the Lost Crops of the Incas

Next time you fit a slab of
butter between two steaming
halves of a baked potato, thank
the Incas a 15th-century civili-
zation that lived in the Andean
highlands of South America. The
potato, peanut, lima bean, pepper
and tomato crops of Inca origin
that have gained world acclaim -
are a fraction of the food treasur-
ers found high on the slopes of
the Andes Mountains.
A prospector of these Andean
foods, Hugh Popenoe at the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) says these neglected
grains, tubers, legumes, fruits,
vegetables and nuts have the po-
tential to combat malnutrition

and generate income in lesser de-
veloped countries and to stimu-
late new markets in industrial-
ized countries.
Popenoe, director of Interna-
tional Programs in Agriculture for
IFAS was a principal contributor
to "Lost Crops of the Incas," pub-
lished in 1989. The book catalogs
over 500 different crops, describ-
ing in depth 32. Among them:
*Nunas or popping beans,
rich in protein with a nutty flavor
that pop like popcorn when heat-
ed in oil. As nunas require far
less fuel than boiling beans, they
are particularly well-suited to re-
gions where fuel is scarce.
*Quinoa, so vital to the Inca
diet it was considered sacred. Re-

This is not an ordinary barbecued
rib recipe. Southwestern Ribs are
baked in your oven in a Reynolds
Oven Cooking Bag. Hassle-free
oven cooking bags are the perfect
solution for letting you enjoy all
the Memorial Day festivities. There's
no hovering over a hot grill for hours.
No scrubbing nasty pans or grill
grids. Oven cooking bags are the
no-mess way to enjoy barbecue.
Each region of the country has
its own barbecue style. If it's
Southwestern barbecue, you know
it has to be spicy. Southwestern Ribs
start with the convenience of your
favorite bottled barbecue sauce.
Add chili powder and cayenne
pepper to give some heat without
overpowering the ribs. Put them all
together in an oven cooking bag and
let the flavors blend while the ribs
cook themselves.
If your impatient crowd can't wait
to taste mouth-watering ribs, try
cooking them in your microwave
oven. You can microwave ribs in
half the time it takes to grill them.
The ribs will need to be turned and
rearranged halfway through the
cooking time. Remember to cut the
slits in the bag near the tie.
Oven cooking bags take the
guesswork out of preparing ribs.
Delicious ribs bake tender and
juicy with no basting or tending.
You can expect superb results every
time. And, with no messy cleanup,
you won't miss a minute of the fun.

Southwestern Ribs
1/4 cup flour
1 large size (14 "x20 ") Reynolds
Oven Cooking Bag
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
1 medium onion, cut into wedges

2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 pounds pork spareribs,
fat trimmed
Preheat oven to 325F. Shake flour
in Reynolds Oven Cooking Bag; place
in 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Add bar-
becue sauce, onion and seasonings.
Squeeze bag to blend ingredients.
Place ribs in bag. Turn bag to coat
ribs with sauce. Arrange ribs in an
even layer. Close bag with nylon
tie; cut 6 half-inch slits in top. Bake
1 1/2 hours or until ribs are tender.
Makes: 4 to 6 servings.

Note: Sauce will cause the top
of the bag to darken in color. This
is a normal reaction and does not
indicate burning.
Microwave Directions: Follow
recipe as directed except cut ribs
into serving size pieces. Place bag in
shallow 2 1/2-quart microwave-safe
casserole. Close bag with nylon tie;
cut 6 half-inch slits in neck of bag
below tie. Microwave on HIGH 5
minutes. Rotate dish once. Micro-
wave on MEDIUM HIGH (70% power)
30 to 40 minutes, or until ribs are
tender, using oven mitts to turn bag
over and rearrange ribs after 15 min-
utes. Let stand in bag 10 minutes.

Storm Si
The storm surge or rise of wa-
ter above its normal level along
the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean,
the Gulf of Mexico, and Lake
Okeechobee, is by far the greatest
danger of a hurricane, especially
with major hurricanes with winds
exceeding 110 miles per hour.
Hurricanes such as these have
killed thousands at Galveston,
Texas...along the Louisiana and
South Carolina coasts...and along
the shores of Lake Okeechobee.
The storm surge height in-
creases with the increase in the
strength of the wind in a hurri-
cane, but it is also very depen-
dent upon the shallowness of the
water near the coastline. This
means that areas which have
shallow water for many miles sea-
ward, such as along the South-
west Florida coast as well as in
the Apalachee Bay area, can get
almost twice the height of water
from the storm surge as the areas
with deeper water near shore,
such as the Destin and Palm
Beach areas, for hurricanes of the
same strength. Unfortunately, the
height of the waves becomes
greater where the water is deeper
near shore, frequently leading to
similar destruction in both areas.

Sharing t
As warm weather arrives,
more and more Americans will be
taking to the roads on bicycles for
exercise, recreation and as an al-
ternative to driving a car.
"Sharing the road means both
motorists and bikers need to fol-
low safety rules carefully," said
Tony Nicely, president of Govern-
. ment Employees Insurance Com-
pany (GEICO). He offers the fol-
lowing tips.
For the cyclist:
*Know the rules of the road
and adhere to them. Ask your lo-
cal police department if there are
any special laws relating to bicy-
*Check your bike over care-
fully before each trip to be sure
all parts are in good working or-
*Obey all traffic signs and sig-
nals. They apply to bikes as well
as motor vehicles.
*Use proper hand signals to
indicate all turns and stops.
*Equip yourself and your bike
with reflectors if you ride at night.
For the motorists:
*Remember, the cyclist has a
right to share the road and is en-
titled to the same courtesies
shown to other motorists.
*Check your mirrors fre-
quently to determine a cyclist's
position and remain aware of his
or her movements.
*Don't tailgate. Leave enough
room to stop safely should the cy-
clist stop suddenly.
*Use caution in passing a bi-
cycle. Follow the same procedure
used for passing a motor vehicle.
"Motorists and cyclists must
share the responsibility for safety
on our roadways," Nicely said.

By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
June and July are months
when grass is growing at its full
potential. Mowing is not only a
chore but a necessary mainte-
nance practice. To comply with
our conservation effort to reduce
the number of bagged clippings
going to landfills, let grass clip-
pings lay in place, it may be nec-
essary to mow as frequently as
every five (5) days. The smaller
the clippings, the more easily
they filter back into the lawn and
become unnoticeable. These are
also months to watch for pests.
When an area in the lawn be-
gins to yellow, REACT! Don't just
ignore itl Usually the problem is
either one of an insect or a dis-
ease. A simple diagnostic test is
to mix two (2) tablespoons of any

soap into two (2) gallons of water
(but don't mix so vigorously to
form suds) and then pour this
over two (2) square feet of grass
right at the edge of where yellow
turns to green. Wait a few min-
utes. If an insect is involved with
the problem, they'll soon climb to
the top of the grass to get away
from the soap. Chinch bugs, mole
crickets and caterpillars are the
pests for which to look. If any of
these come up, treat with an in-
secticide. Check with local garden
centers or your County Extension
Service for what they have that
would work (Diazinon and Durs-
ban are commonly used). If no in-
sect is observed, the yellowing is
due to something else and an in-
secticide will not help. It could be
a bum from using a weed killer
or a problem with water (too

much or too little) but to play it
safe, spray for diseases. Daconil
is a commonly used fungicide
that controls a large number of
diseases on turf.
When spraying with an insec-
ticide or fungicide, don't treat the
whole yard! Help reduce needless
chemical application to our envi-
ronment. Treat only the affected
area and a 10 foot border around
it. Mow a day or two before treat-'
ing and don't wash the product in
unless label directions tell you to
do so. A second treatment in 10-
14 days is required for most prod-
With summer in full swing,
many ask when is the next ferti-
lizer application. In an effort to
reduce the amount of chemical
applied, current recommenda-
tions are to either low analysis
fertilizers (such as 10-10-10 or
15-0-15 at low rates) or do not
fertilize at all in the summer.

Studies have shown that grasses
such as St. Augustine and Bahia
can go the entire summer with no
fertilizer if clippings are allowed
to fall back to continue providing
slow release nutrition to the
grass. It has also been demon-
strated by eliminating those high
analysis fertilizers in the sum-
mer, which produce a "bright
green" appearance, pests such as
grey leaf spot, chinch bugs and
lawn caterpillars, can be reduced.
Mole crickets have laid their
eggs now and these eggs will soon
be hatching. If there was a prob-
lem with these insects in the lawn
this last year, now is the time to
try to reduce their number by
killing these young hatchlings be-
fore they become adults. To do
this, apply a granular application
of a product called Oftanol. Water
it in immediately (within a half
hour of applying), and this should
stay in the soil for the next two to
three months, killing all young
crickets as they hatch. Note that
in the past this treatment was
recommended for May. Studies
have shown that the hatch-out
cycles for this area are a little lat-
er than once thought. It is, there-
fore, suggested that the most ef-
fective application period for the
residual product Oftanol is June
through mid-July. Oftanol is only
used once a year for mole cricket
control since it gives very little
control to large crickets and
works best on these that have
only recently hatched.

Legislation Introduced

to Protect Rivers Harmed

by Upstream Pollution
Congressman Pete Peterson, of Florida's Second Congressional
District, announced that he has just introduced legislation that
would provide protection for downstream rivers which have been
harmed by upstream pollution such as the Suwannee, Apalachico-
la, Choctawhatchee, and Chattahoochee rivers.
Peterson's bill, H.R. 2538, was introduced as companion legis-
lation to a measure sponsored by Senator Bob Graham last month.
As a member of the Water Resources Subcommittee, Peterson said
he would work to include as much as possible of his bill into the
Clean Water Act Reauthorization, which is expected to come up this
Peterson's bill mandates that applications for permits for up-
stream business activities be sent through the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency to the downstream state for review. If the activity will
violate the downstream state's water quality or designated uses for
the river, the downstream state could request modifications or
could prevent permits from being issued.
'This bill addresses the issue of river management from the bot-
tom up. Florida and other states around the country are ultimately
downstream states that have had very little say in the decision
making process. This bill would give those state's a greater say in
the matter as well as encourage greater cooperation and help medi-
ate ongoing water conflicts," said Peterson.
Peterson added that his bill would extend state jurisdiction over
coastal water quality from three miles to 12 miles and upgrade min-
imum water quality standards nationwide.

Flip Flop


A Shark

Plastic debris found in the
marine environment breaks down
very slowly. Plastics are circulat-
ed in the oceans by tides, winds,
and currents eventually washes
up on the- shores. Such a case
happened on St. Joe Beach when
a young black tip shark became
entangled in this debris.
Barbara Eells and Flo Mad-
dox were walking along St. Joe
* Beach west of the Dixie Belle
Curve Wednesday evening when
they witnessed this unusual oc-
currence. A 2.25 foot black tip
shark had stuck its head in a
floating flip flop shoe and stran-
gled to death. The strap from the
flip flop held its mouth tightly
shut where it couldn't breathe or
feed. A good guess is that sharks
aren't designed to wear flip flops.
Wonder where the other flip flop
Plastics are now the most
common man made objects in the
bay. Let's all be careful and don't
throw debris overboard. Stow it,
don't throw it. Bring it back to
port and recycle it or throw it in
the trash can.

Many people fear the strong
winds associated with the most
intense hurricanes. For those
people who live away from the
coastlines and are not threatened
by the storm surge, this aware-
ness of the danger from these
strong winds is needed. The de-
struction caused by winds of a
hurricane is proportional to the
square of the wind speed, so that
a hurricane with winds of 200
miles per hour is four times more
destructive than one with 100
miles per hour, not just two times
more destructive.
The strongest winds associat-
ed with hurricanes are seldom
measured when the hurricane
makes landfall, either because
the instruments which measure
the winds are destroyed or the
strongest winds occur where
there are no instruments. In
those rare instances where in-
struments have survived and
been in the most intense part of
the hurricane, winds as high as
160 miles per hour in gusts have
been measured. Just as numeri-
cal storm surge models tell us
how high the water can get in
hurricanes, hurricane reconnais-
sance aircraft are measuring the
winds in hurricanes prior to land-
The National Hurricane Cen-
ter uses this information along
with the minimum central pres-
sure in a hurricane to predict the
maximum winds associated with
a hurricane. While the strongest
sustained winds occur along the
immediate coastal sections, areas
as much as 200 miles inland can
receive wind gusts to 100 miles
per hour from the most intense
hurricanes moving at a very fast

sincere appreciation for all of the
help she has received to continue
her education. She has also re-.
ceived a scholarship from Troy
State University and will be en-.
rolled there in the fall. The Lions
Club of Port St. Joe salutes Ca-
londra and all of the other fine
graduates from the Gulf County
area, and they are wished well as
they enter into new challenges.
The second guest speaker
was Bob Watson, who made a
presentation on the organ and
tissue donor program. Two short
films were shown on what this
program provides and how it
works. The area of this program
that is of special interest to the
Lions Club is the "Eye Bank".
This service offers help to those
who need cornea transplants,
also it provides for research and
training. During the past five:
years the Pensacola Eye Bank
Branch has been able to provide
for 1416 transplants, 1583 re-
search tissues, and 458 tissues
for training purposes. It is
through this kind of commitment
that sight related problems are
addressed by such organizations
as the Lions International of
which the local Lions Club is
proud to be a part. Anyone wish-
ing to become a donor or those
who would like to know more
about how the program works is
urged to contact one of the Lion
officers listed in this article.

TAP Aids In


After Leaving

the Military
The Department of Veterans
Affairs has announced an expan-
sion of the Transition Assistance
Program (TAP) to assist military
personnel in adjusting to civilian
life upon separation from service.
.. The, program, operated
through the combined efforts of
VA and the Departmentr, of De-'
fense and Labor, provides em-
ployment assistance, job training
assistance and other transitional
services, as well as counseling on
VA benefits, to servicemembers
who are being separated from the
A second component Is the
Disabled Transition Assistance
Program, which is geared to ser-
vicemembers who are being sep-
arated for medical reasons. Spe-
cialized and more personal
counseling on employment and
vocational rehabilitation is pro-
vided at major military medical
centers where separations occur.
This program is conducted in
conjunction with TAP to provide
information on the future range
of VA benefits and services. 1"
TAP was initially begun as a
pilot program in May 1990 at 13
military installations serving 22
facilities in seven states. Addi-
tional sites are being phased in
gradually, and TAP will be fully
implemented by the end of fiscal
year 1992 at approximately 230
installations in the United States
and Europe.
VA's Veterans Assistance Ser-
vice, through a network of 58 re-
gional offices, is providing sup-
port at all TAP sites, at pre-
separation and retirement brief-
ings, and at military installations
within their jurisdiction. VA staff
also are providing transition as-
sistance to Reserve and National
Guard members who were called
to active duty in support of the
Persian Gulf War.

rarely, if. ever, seen and the
strong winds are more likely as-
sociated with bands of very heavy
squalls or thunderstorms. Since
the winds in intense hurricanes
are about the same as those in
tornadoes associated with hurri-
canes, it is easy to mistake these
hurricane-related winds for tor-
nado winds.
Some areas will be asked to
evacuate by emergency manage-
ment officials because of the de-
structive potential of these winds.

Public Water System
The above noted public water system has
been cited by the Department of Environmental
Regulation for violation of monitoring/reporting re-
quirements. All non-community public water sys-
tems are required to monitor for coliform bacteria
every calendar quarter. The Department received
only one of the required two distribution samples
far the 1st quarter of 1991.
The United States Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) sets drinking water st and
monitoring/reporting requirements to determine
the presence of microbiological contaminants. The
presence of mlcrobtological contaminants in drink-
ing water may cause disease. EPA has set enforce-
able requirements for testing drinking water to re-
duc e risk of adverse health effects. Treatment
such as filtering and disinfecting the water re-
moves or destroys microbiological contaminants.
Drinking water which is treated to meet EPA re-
quirements should be considered safe. Monitor-
ng/reporting Is performed to assure that the
drinking water from a public water system meets
EPA requirements.

'Water Toys" Becoming Common; So Are Accidents They Cause

Personal watercraft, known
as Jet Skis, water scooters, wet
cycles, and other names, are be-
coming increasingly common, but
so are accidents involving these
type of boats. In Florida 18 people
have been killed and many other
It Isn't that they are more
dangerous than other types of
watercraft, it's the way a few peo-
ple operate them, and a lack of
common courtesy, that causes
many of the problems.
A personal watercraft is con-
sidered a motorboat under the
law. That means it must be regis-
tered, and you must abide by all

must have a manufacturer

half hour before sunrise. No per-
son under 14 years of age shall
operate a personal watercraft. No
person under 16 years of age
shall rent a personal watercraft.
Although they're simple to op-
erate, the personal watercraft is
not a child's toy a rule of
thumb is if you're nt old enough
to drive a car, you shouldn't be
operating a personal watercraft.
Safety Tips
*Wear the proper safety
equipment. Besides a U.S. Coast
Guard approved life jacket, wear
eye protection to keep water
spray from obscuring your vision.
Tennis or deck shoes offer better
control on your machine, and
gloves and a wet suit offer protec-
tion from the elements. A whistle
attached to the zipper of your life
jacket is a good idea in case you
need to summon help.
*Take a boating safety course.
Your dealer probably knows
where they're offered, and many
participate in personal watercraft
education programs.
*Respect the rights of others.

Solar Powered
Tested by FPC

Florida Power Corporation is
testing solar-powered sprinklers
for roadway medians that are
hard to reach with electrical ser-
vice. Twelve such devices will be
installed in the newly landscaped
medians along Gulf Boulevard in
Redington Shores in Pinellas
Photovoltaic devices appear
to be a feasible alternative to the
expensive job of connecting such
"remote locations" with electricity,
according to Christy Herig, mar-
keting development engineer for
Florida Power.
The cost to drill underneath
the roadway and lay cable to sup-
ply each median with power
could range from $1,000 to
Instead, Florida Power pro-
posed installing units that obtain
power through photovoltaics and
store the energy in batteries for
24-hour use. The irrigation sys-
tem itself is underground, reach-
ing the roots of grass and plants.
There are no sprinkler heads,
thus eliminating wasteful spray.
'This is a pilot project and in-
formation on reliability and power
consumption will be gathered to
determine if this type of service is
cost-effective for Florida Power to
provide to other customers," said
In the future, Florida Power
could file a special rate for this
program with the Florida Public
Service Commission or provide a
lease plan to customers as two
options for recouping costs.
Median strips are not the
only application for solar-powered
sprinklers. They can also be con-

That includes not following other
boats too closely, or jumping an-
other boat's wake, which is fright-
ening and dangerous. Stay away
from anglers and canoeists.
*Be conscious of the noise
your craft makes. If you run it in
a small area for a long time the
noise can be irritating.
*Keep a lookout for other
boats, especially other personal
watercraft. Collisions are the
most common type of personal
watercraft accident.
*Read the owner's manual so
you understand the controls and
features of your personal water-
*Never operate your personal
watercraft without the safety lan-
yard attached to you. The safety
lanyard cuts the engine in the
event you fall, and could save you
a long swim home.
-Stay out of swimming areas,
away from wildlife. Never operate
at night, or tow water skiers.
*Don't operate it after you've
been drinking, and know the wa-
ter where you're operating so you
